  • Weekend StayWeekend Stay

    My husband and I have just spent the weekend at the Genetti Hotel. I can't recommend this Hotel highly enough. Everything was wonderful. The rooms are beautiful, very clean and very comfortable. We had one of the Whirlpool Suites and it was perfect.The staff are so friendly and very helpful and really strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. What can I say about the Breakfast Buffet... Just outstanding!! My husband and I have never seen such a variety and quality of breakfast foods as the Genetti has. They have everything you could possibly want and more. We had the most wonderful weekend away here and we will definitely be back again. Truly marvelous and so fabulous to see that there are still Hotels who value service and comfort to such a high standard. Thank you so much for giving my husband and I such a wonderful weekend's stay.

  • Full of old world charmFull of old world charm

    Step back in time at this hotel. Rooms were clean and big and completely different to any other hotel we stayed in during our trip to the States, we could feel the history of the hotel. Never having been to the US before we found the breakfast amazing - tried things we'd never tasted before and all were good. Meals in the restaurant were huge as I needed a doggy bag for my starters. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay there again.

  • What hotels were like 50 years ago!What hotels were like 50 years ago!

    If you are old enough to remember grand old downtown hotels, you'll enjoy a stay at what was once The Lycoming Hotel where businessmen stayed, lunched, attended meetings, and took their wives to dinner for their birthday. The rates are surprisingly reasonable and the atmosphere is rich. The staff is very gracious and upgrades seem easy to obtain. The buffet breakfast is extensive. Parking is free on an adjoining parking lot. The only drawback is the long walk to check-in. Help with luggage is available upon request.

  • Business TripBusiness Trip

    A good start to my hotel stay was at check in. Cheryl at the front desk was very upbeat, friendly, and helpful. Put me in a nice comfortable room non-smoking quiet. Coffee(Maxwell House) maker in room. The complimentary HOT breakfast buffet was very good. TVs in breakfast area a nice plus. Two elevators for quicker service. Checkout was a breeze, Wonderful hotel experience.

  • Great historyGreat history

    Stayed here for the Pennsylvania hog rally. Had a wonderful time. Beautiful hotel, great service. Nice staff. No complaints! Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Nice pool! Met the manager who was nice. Great area to ride on a motorcycle. Highly recommend to anyone.

  • Clean, friendly, helpfulClean, friendly, helpful

    We stayed here when passing through town. The hotel was built in 1922 and it has an historical feel. Not a modern hotel, but very quaint and clean. The staff were great! Especially Cheryl at the front desk. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. The outdoor pool was a nice size, clean, and plenty of seating and Clean towels. The breakfast buffet was very good with lots of hot and cold choices. Highly recommend.

  • Absolutely fabulousAbsolutely fabulous

    Old fashioned charm. Every single staff member was friendly and helpful. Cheryl at the front desk went out of her way to make sure we were happy. The room was huge, clean, comfortable and luxurious. Free breakfast spread was amazing. The pool was great, location was perfect, free wifi, and with all that said, price was cheaper than any other hotel downtown. Will be back.

  • Little League World SeriesLittle League World Series

    We had the pleasure of staying here and would like to give a shout out to Alicia, Ron and Andrea for the great service checking in and help about the area. Lots of fun history within walking distance.

  • Historic, comfortable hotelHistoric, comfortable hotel

    I stayed overnight in Williamsport on a motorcycle tour. The renovated Genetti was perfect. I was upgraded to a suite, very comfortable, clean and peaceful. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Gated parking lot made me feel safer leaving the bike overnight. Full hot breakfast was excellent. Across the street is a fun little pub with good food, beer and conversation. Along same street is a shopping district that I enjoyed walking through. The entire experience made me want to come back.

  • Great stay in my old home townGreat stay in my old home town

    I grew up in Williamsport and returned to visit and have dinner with old friends for the first time in 40 years. Since the Lycoming Hotel (now the Genetti Hotel) had been THE place to stay I went on line to book a room but their site showed nothing available. Called the property directly and spoke with reservations manager Cheryl who was able to find me a room at a reasonable price.

    My room was the Bob Hope suite with a large corner living room (sofa, chairs, desk, wet bar with refrigerator and microwave) and a connecting, comfortable bedroom and bath. Large flat screen TVs in both. The accommodations were clean and quiet and I especially enjoyed the historical ambiance of the hotel with old photos and antiques within the room and common areas of the property.

    A night's stay includes a free breakfast which goes far beyond the usual make-your-own-waffles and cereal offered by most hotel chains. A buffet of fresh cut fruit, juices, coffee, eggs, sausage, bacon, corn beef hash, potatoes, bagels and toast was excellent.

    Downtown location is near many bars and restaurants and a gated parking lot is adjacent to the hotel with no charge to guests. Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. This is a great change of pace from the average chain hotel and I will definitely stay here my next visit.

  • Lovely piece of historyLovely piece of history

    I was greeted at the front desk with a warm friendly face and all my wishes for rooms fulfilled. We had two rooms, One was an accessible room with twin queen beds the other room just a single queen. Both rooms were clean and a pleasure to be in. Yes this is not a new ultra modern hotel we came here because it was not only downtown but for the ambience of a lovely old hotel. The morning hot breakfast was outstanding one of the best I've ever had at a hotel if not the best. The hotel is convenient downtown too many shops restaurants and adult beverages.

  • Great choice if you like historic hotelsGreat choice if you like historic hotels

    The Genetti is the place to stay if your are going to a show at the Community Arts center. They have a cool bar and a nice buffet before a lot of the shows.

    The hotel itself has ton's of character that you would expect in an older historic hotel. The rooms are fairly modern, but you wouldn't want too modern or it would take away from the atmosphere.

    I've always had a comfortable bed and a clean room when we've been there and the staff are very good about helping you with dinner reservations or activities.

  • Lovely Old Characterful PlaceLovely Old Characterful Place

    Well, what can I say, such a special hotel. It's owned by one family and you can tell. Full of character inside, friendly staff and we got an upgrade to a suite!
    Room was lovely, masses of space, everything had been considered.

    Parking free, at rear of hotel. The walls in reception are covered in photographs from the history of the hotel, makes it so much more interesting to stay, much better than the normal chain, faceless hotels.

    Breakfast was a huge array of good choices, all included in the very reasonable price.
    Highly recommend this place. I did ask about the's not 11th floor (there is no 11th floor) it's a room on the 8th floor that's haunted. If you want to be scared ask for it??

  • This place was incredible!This place was incredible!

    My husband and I stayed during the orientation at Lycoming College. The courtesy and knowledge of the staff for local events was outstanding. We highly recommend this place and we look forward to our next stay.

  • Zachary (at the front desk) is the Man!Zachary (at the front desk) is the Man!

    My boyfriend and I stayed the night this past weekend for his graduation and could not have been any happier with our choice of hotel. We arrived late Friday night and had the pleasure of being greeted by Zachary, the front desk attendant, who accomadated our every need.

    After our two and a half hour drive to Williamsport, arriving after two in the morning for the graduation the next day, it was such a breath of fresh air to be helped by an employee like Zachary. It is so nice to see someone who enjoys their job and have such a great attitude (esp. accomadating people at 2:30 in the morning).

    I just really felt that I had to write this comment to you guys to let you know how great of service we had and that we thoroughly enjoyed our night at the Genetti. Since we were enjoying ourselves so much in our gorgeous room, we woke up very late for the graduation ceremony. There was an incedent in the morning where my boyfriend and I woke up at 9:30am and my boyfriend was supposed to be there at 9. So we had not even 30 minutes to get ready and run down there. We were running around in a frenzy trying to get ready as quick as possible since we were extremely close to missing the biggest part of graduation day, the walk, and we went to use the iron and it was broken.

    My boyfriend quickly called down and explained our situation and we were astonished by how fast they ran up a brand new iron to our room. Literally one minute it took, and that really saved the day. Next trip to Williamsport the Genetti is where we will be staying, just wanted to say thanks again (and a special thanks to Zachary!)

    Room Tip: The whirlpool room was awesome.


    I have the honor and the privilege to stay at the Genetti 5 times a year. Some people think that since the hotel is older it is not modernized so they want something plush. Well let me tell you that if there were Genetti Hotels all across the world, I would stay at them every time. First above all, the history incorporated in this hotel is emotionally warming. It is a wonderful walk down memory lane.

    I had reserved a room with a queen sized bed, but they upgraded me to a room with a king sized bed and reduced the price. I had a lovely room on the 8th floor with a large ceiling fan. I loved that the inner doors to the closet and bathroom still sported older type hardware. Modern touches included a microwave and refrigerator in the room, large television and very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows.

    I also loved that there was still a glass-fronted mail drop chute inbetween the elevators.

    Breakfast was complementary and included eggs, bacon, French toast, sausage, even grits (in Pennsylvania!), applesauce, hardboiled eggs, etc. and delicious coffee. The staff was great – at the front desk and in the dining area.

  • A comfortable hotel with a top-notch staff. . .A comfortable hotel with a top-notch staff. . .

    An old-fashioned--in the best sense of that term--downtown hotel: high ceilings and carved woodwork in the meeting rooms, for example. However, the pool, the restaurant, and above all the staff, are up to the minute.

    I had forgotten to bring a printout of my speech, and discovered that my flashdrive was corrupted. Though the hotel's 'public' computers had no capability to accept my 'second backup' SD card, staffer Matthew took the card, did some magic behind the scenes, and produced a printout--no cost. Matthew also saw to it that I received a room discount based on my former military service.
    Other staffers were outstandingly friendly and helpful, not one of them ever exhibiting that coldly courteous, almost robotic demeanor that I find so off-putting at some big-city hotels. Breakfasts are included in the room charge; unlike some places offering a 'Continental' breakfast, this one is warm, with a large variety of choices. Dining room staff were every bit as helpful, friendly, and eager to care for the guest's needs and wants as the front desk staff. Management of this hotel clearly works hard to provide guests a positive experience, and staff attitudes reflect that.

    Room Tip: My room was 9th floor, south-facing, with a breath-taking panoramic view of Bald Eagle Mountain acro...
